    Nickelodeon Out of the Vault: Halloween

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on September 1st, 2015

    by Dustin P. Anderson

    This DVD contains some of the scariest episodes of classic Nickelodeon animated TV shows. Hey Arnold! follows a young boy living in a city trying to deal with the day-to-day troubles an elementary-grade child would be dealing with. The Angry Beavers is about a sibling duo of beavers; the cool, sophisticated Norbert and his hyperactive brother Daggit. Ahhh! Real Monsters tells us the story of monsters going through “Scare School” (this series came way before Monsters University) under the strict thumb of The Grumble.

    Nickelodeon Rootin’ Tootin’ Wild West

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on August 17th, 2013

    It is very common for Nickelodeon to release these sorts of compilation sets. Previously I had covered their themes of Learning the ABCs as well as their Christmas release (as found here: http://upcomingdiscs.com/?s=nickelodeon). This time we get 6 different Nick Jr. programs focusing on the “Wild West” (aka, country music, cowboys hats and horses).

    Nickelodeon Let’s Learn ABCs & 123s

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on January 17th, 2013

    Learning your ABCs and 123s are perhaps the most broad and basic themes an educational children’s televion show could take.  Nickelodeon offers a roster of their most popular shows (at least, those designed for pre-schoolers) to cover said topics in two seperate DVD releases. Each DVD is virtually identical in structure. There only difference are to particular episodes chosen from each show.

    Tuesday Round Up: September 1, 2015

    Posted in Tuesday Round Up by John Ceballos on September 1st, 2015

    What a lovely day! The 3D Blu-ray for Mad Max: Fury Road leads a stacked pack of 23(!!) new releases that we’ll be reviewing here at UpcomingDiscs, breaking a record set way back in…ok, it was two weeks ago. Fortunately, we’ve gotten a pretty good head start: you can already read our takes on CBS/Paramount’s The Originals: Season 2 and Hawaii Five-O: Season 5, Anchor Bay’s Lost After Dark and Felt, Lionsgate’s Panic 5 Bravo, Image Entertainment’s Run Hide Die, Shout! Factory’s Out of the Vault: Halloween collection, and IndiePix’s Falling Star. CBS/Paramount will also hop on The D Train, sting us with Scorpion: Season 1, offer up a Good Kill, introduce us to Madame Secretary: Season 1, and (roundhouse)kick butt with a Walker: Texas Ranger 4-Film Collection.

    In addition to Mad Max, Warner Bros. presents a bloody good dose of The Vampire Diaries: Season 6You won’t have to visit a website far, far away to read about Star Wars — Rebels: Season 1 from ABC/Disney, which is also turning over the keys to Castle: Season 7. Anchor Bay attempts to avoid The Curse of Downer’s Grove, HBO sings the blues with Bessie, A&E Home Video saddles up for Texas Rising, and Comedy Central Studios intimidates with I Am Dale Earnhardt. Last but not least, Entertainment One rises to The Surface while XLrator Media goes for a Five Star rating.

    Those last two titles will also be part of our ever-popular giveaways. (You can already enter to win The Surface.) Remember that once a month we’re going to give away a free DVD title from among the comments in our weekly Round-Up posts. All you have to do is comment on a Round-Up post — like this one! — and tell us which of these titles you’re most excited to watch or read about. The winners and their prizes will be announced the first week of every month right here in our Tuesday Round-Up post.

    And one last reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!

    L.A. Apocalypse

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on March 25th, 2015

    The recent earthquakes in Los Angeles: facts of life or foreshadowing the big one?”

    I’m not saying the makers of L.A. Apocalypse — a SyFy-level TV movie centered on catastrophic earthquakes in California — timed the release of their low-budget action flick so it premiered well ahead of San Andreas, the would-be summer blockbuster starring Dwayne Johnson about catastrophic earthquakes in California. It’s just funny how things often work out that way. L.A. Apocalypse doesn’t have The Rock (or anyone you’ve likely heard of) and is working with a very small fraction of San Andreas‘ budget. The result is as underwhelming as you’d expect.

    Dreamworld

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Paul on March 13th, 2014

    Whit (Whitby) Hertford is short, around 5 foot 1. He is the writer and star of Dreamworld. I mention this because he is the little dynamo that drives dreams of greatness. He also plays the depressed and scared little mouse because it is a part he understands. Whitby Hertford was a child actor (Nightmare on Elm Street 5: Dream Child), and he has retained the giant puppy-dog eyes even though now he has five o’clock shadow and a puffy face. He has worked regularly through the years, because clearly he is bitten with the bug. He wants to be a star. If he is going to be a star, he will be an unlikely one. At least he hasn’t  gone the way of many child actors. He’s not a drug addict, prostitute or convicted felon. He has the look of someone who is dying, though. He has a sad and longing look.

    Bubble Guppies – Animals Everywhere!

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on March 8th, 2014

    Instead of featuring episodes from this season in consecutive order this DVD set takes episodes of a similar theme from each of its three seasons and bundles them together. As the title ever so subtly suggests, these episodes all feature animals. Along with sharing a theme, these episodes all follow the same formula that Bubble Guppies has had all along.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Mutagen Mayhem

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on March 5th, 2014

    This is the third stab at making an animated series about these radical reptiles. This particular DVD set is the lfirst half of the show’s second season. We are privy to a wide array of toys…er, I mean, characters whose stories are firmly established at this point.

    Bubble Guppies/Team Umizoomi: Into the Snow We Go!

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on November 21st, 2013

    Nickelodeon has released a Holiday compilation DVD before(http://upcomingdiscs.com/2011/11/15/nickelodeon-favorites-merry-christmas/) which makes this particular release a sort of sequel to that. This time around only two shows are featured, and there is half the episodes featured than in the previous release.

    Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on November 13th, 2013

    Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol is vastly re-imagined with characters from Dora. Swiper replaces Scrooge as the one who travels through time in order to learn the true meaning of Christmas. This special is twice the length of a normal episode.

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Monsters Vs Aliens: Cloning Around

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 27th, 2013

    With Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Dragons: Riders of Berk, it would seem only fitting that Monsters vs. Aliens would get an animated series of its own as well.  Nickelodeon seems to know what they are doing by mass producing these hit DreamWorks animated films and bringing them to the small screen.  The biggest shock is that in doing so they’ve managed to maintain the quality on a story level as well as animation level while under the budget constraints of having to produce multiple episodes as compared to one feature film.

    Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – The Scorpion Sting

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 24th, 2013

    The Furious 5 are back in the new collection of episodes from the Nickelodeon hit show, inspired by the film Kung Fu Panda.  It wasn’t too long ago that I reviewed the first batch of episodes in the collection Good Croc, Bad Croc, and I had a good time with that set.  Now with the new collection, would it fare as well as the first, or will it blow my mind with its kung fu awesomeness?  Well, why waste any more time, and get right to it. For those unfamiliar with the show or movies, that is fine

    “31 Nights Of Terror” Aaahh!!! Real Monsters: The Complete Series

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on October 13th, 2013

    At some point as we’re getting older I think we all get a little nostalgic for the things we liked when we were younger.  For everyone I believe our reasons are different for having this trip to the past, whether it’s playing that old cassette that never seemed to leave our car radio, revisiting old NES games, and most commonly I think it’s the movies and TV shows we looked upon so lovingly in our youth.  Sadly, though, these trips to the past seem to leave us scratching our heads, wondering what we were ever thinking.  And that would about sum up my experience reviewing Shout’s release of the Nickelodeon series Aaahh!!! Real Monsters.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Ultimate Showdown

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on October 9th, 2013

    This is the third stab at making an animated series about these radical reptiles. This particular DVD set is the latter half of this show’s first season. We are privy to a wide array of toys…er, I mean, characters whose stories are firmly established at this point (roughly 13 episodes into a 26 episode season).

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Enter Shredder

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on August 1st, 2013

    This is the third stab at making an animated series about these radical reptiles. This lone DVD acts as a sampler of seven episodes taken from the middle of its first season, instead of the complete season set. (A common move from Nickelodeon.) These episodes introduce the characters well enough that it will make you curious to see more of what this series has to offer.

    Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness – Good Croc, Bad Croc

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Brent Lorentson on July 4th, 2013

    After having two successful films, Kung Fu Panda made its way onto the small screen as an animated show for Nickelodeon.  Though I wasn’t the biggest fan of the films, I could still appreciate the charm and allure of Po, the Dragon warrior who just so happens to be a Panda.  In the films Jack Black voiced the character of Po, and it’s his goofiness that seemed to make Po so likeable.  But on the small screen, the studios can throw down the healthy chunk of money that the A list actors take in when doing the voice work for the full-length films.  As luck would have it Mike Wingert would take over the voice work of the title character, and he does a remarkable job filling in.

    Spongebob Squarepants – Extreme Kah-Rah-Tay

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on January 19th, 2013

    Spongebob Squarepants, the flagship cartoon for Nickelodeon for the last few years, has been churning out DVD specials inbetween releases of complete seasons. Sometimes these are linked by a theme (such as the Halloween DVD I reviewed in October http://upcomingdiscs.com/2012/10/15/31-nights-of-terror-spongebob-squarepants-ghouls-fools/) and this would mean taking episodes from numerous seasons. This particular special mostly contains more recent episodes, all of which have some sort of “extreme” or somewhat violent/action oriented story.

    “31 Nights of Terror” Spongebob Squarepants – Ghouls Fools

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on October 15th, 2012

    There have been numerous DVD releases of Spongebob episodes that are linked together by a theme. Holidays are obvious choices and Halloween is an inevitable choice for any series that has multiple seasons under their belt. As expected as it may be, that does not dampen the loony fun that comes along with Sponebob.

    Power Rangers Samurai: Volume 1 & 2

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on June 18th, 2012

    Did you know that Power Rangers Samurai is the nineteenth season of Power Rangers? But the difference here is that Saban Brands bought back the franchise and have promised a more fun and humorous Power Rangers, similar to older seasons when they last owned the product. So, today I have for you folks a look at the first two volumes of this new series. Let us see if the new team holds a candle to the heroes of old.

    Rocko’s Modern Life: Season Two

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on January 25th, 2012

    My wife Sarah is not a normal bird, I have deeply accepted this. To be honest, if she was anything resembling normal, I probably would not be madly in love with her. But with her quirky ways, I am to a point where I know her likes and dislikes. Every once in a while, she does throw me off, especially when it comes to which cartoons she likes to watch. One of her favorite cartoons that she likes to watch goes by the name of Rocko’s Modern Life. It just so happens that today’s review goes over the second season. Let us see what it has to offer.

    Kung Fu Panda 2 / Secrets of the Masters (Blu-ray)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 14th, 2011

    “Long ago in ancient China, the peacocks ruled over Gongmen City. They brought great joy and prosperity to the city, for they had invented fireworks. But their son, Lord Shen, saw darker power in the fireworks. What had brought color and joy could also bring darkness and destruction. Shen’s troubled parents consulted a soothsayer. She foretold that if he continued down this dark path, he would be defeated by a warrior of black and white.”

    We all know who that warrior is, don’t we?

    CatDog: Season One, Part One

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on October 20th, 2011

    It is that time for more cartoon goodness from the people at Nickelodeon. As we have seen, I seem to attract odd cartoons to review. Let’s see, there is a dude with a football as a head, a beaver with a surfer voice or perhaps a monster who has to carry his own eyeballs. This time I lay witness to a Cat and a Dog conjoined at the stomach devoid of tails or hind legs. What sounds like a bad science experiment might be full of cartoon love.

    “31 Nights of Terror” Aaahh!! Real Monsters – Season One

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on October 9th, 2011

    Upcomingdisc’s 31 Nights of Terror is a favorite of many here at the website. I have been through a few now and have always tried to bring something unique to the table. Whether it be Top 10 Lists, special movie essays, or games of a forgotten lore, I always want this time of the year to be different and wonderful. Well today, to start off my month of oddball terror off right, I am given a rare scary (well somewhat anyway) animation title. One of my favorites from the mid 90’s, Aaahh!! Real Monsters, Season 1 from our friends at Shout Factory.

    Danny Phantom: Season One

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Michael Durr on September 17th, 2011

    One of my favorite “kiddie” type cartoons is Fairly Odd Parents. A giant size of wit (surprisingly adult in nature on occasion) and a ton of charm make the cartoon a boatload of fun to watch. It was created by Butch Hartman who has a long list of popular toon credits including Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken and Dexter’s Laboratory. Eventually Hartman started to do more than storyboard or write cartoons. He created cartoons, including one such cartoon named Danny Phantom which is our subject today.
